They look great a lot better than my first dries,

 

 

I got a tip for you, along with every one telling you what to do, you gotta look at your own flies and say what you think you did wrong or what could be better

Look okay. A couple things. On the 2nd one you clipped the hackle. Next time try to get appropriately sized rooster hackle, it will look better and float better.

Also looks like you are using the webby kind of saddle hackle used for streamers. I suggest getting yourself some good quality dry hackle. Metz is a good one, good quality but not too expensive.

Keep working at it, practice makes perfect.

smalliefanatic has identified one of my two comments. The tails on both could be cocked up a bit more. You can do this by putting a thread wrap or two under the tail fibers and over the top of the hook and pull the thread forward just enough to give the tail a slight upward slant.
